Doggie in Red


Not a Part of the Action

I took this picture of my “niece” Dallas as her Daddy was frying up some bacon for his house guests.  It was hard enough on poor Dallas when she was tossed outside, but then when those fabulous bacon smells began drifting through the open window … well, that was nearly too much for her!

I loved the expression on her face and decided to try making a redwork Dallas as a gift for her parents.  I went with the quickest “lightbox” I had, my computer, held up a white piece of cotton fabric, then traced the parts of the photo I wanted to use with a fabric pen.  (I probably shouldn’t recommend that, but it worked for me.)  When completed and added to the frame I painted just for this project, it looked like this:

My Niece Dallas

I should try this with my own pets next.
